Republican Senator Ted Cruz decided to troll far-left Congressman Eric Swalwell of California on Tuesday when the California Democrat tried setting up a bet.
“I will make this open bet to @tedcruz — if the @dallascowboys beat the @49ers I won’t tweet for the rest of January. If the @49ers win you can’t tweet for rest of January,” Swalwell tweeted. “How Texan are you, Ted? Deal?”
Cruz shot back a day later with the ultimate smackdown.
“How about we bet a Chinese dinner instead?” Cruz said.
The Republican Senator was jabbing Swalwell for sleeping with a Chinese spy.
“Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) has come under intense scrutiny and some sharp criticism, especially from Republicans, this month after it was revealed that a suspected spy for the Chinese Communist Party worked as a prominent Swalwell fundraiser for years—to the point she was able to influence a job hire in his Congressional office—leading to some calls for his removal from the House intelligence committee even though he hasn’t been accused of wrongdoing by authorities,” Forbes reported.
